I was surprised to see inthis thread that there are still so many people who don’t believe in wearing seat belts. It’s been the law in Canada to wear seat belts in front and back seats for so long that I barely remember a time before the law, but apparently the debate is still raging on down South. The debate about enforcing seat belt laws also seems to be raging still.
It’s very interesting to me to see how many people balk at wearing seat belts which have been proven to be an effective safety device, but they don’t seem to have any problems with air bags which are a questionable safety device at best, and an actual danger to kids and small adults at worst.
So, in the interest of fighting ignorance, how about we have a go round on seat belts? We can all trot out our arguments for and against, and may the best arguments win!
